Custom Rollforming Corp. Builds Money-Saving Solar Racking for Green Fuel Technologies

06/08/2012

MOUNDRIDGE, KS - Custom Rollforming Corp. (CRC), a leading manufacturer of custom roll-formed products, recently supplied specially designed solar racking for a 300-kilowatt solar farm at Southwest Baking located in Tolleson, AZ. This new, economical racking design offers potential advantages for a wide range of large-scale solar panel applications.

The assignment given Custom Rollforming Corp. by the solar farm contractor, Green Fuel Technologies, was to provide a durable racking solution to be used with Scheuten 195 Wp Polycrystalline Modules. Design parameters required that the racking must be easy to install, provide robust panel support, and yet be low-cost. Custom Rollforming Corp. worked closely with Green Fuel Technologies and structural engineers to develop a simple, efficient ground-mount racking system for use in large, utility-scale solar energy systems. During the design phase, consideration was given not only to manufacturing costs but also to efficient utilization of real estate and to the speed of installation. The result was a money-saving design that can be installed at one of the lowest cost-per-watt factors so far attained in the solar industry.

Green Fuel Technologies commercial and residential divisions have installed more than 4 megawatts of solar electric systems in Arizona alone and have over 20 megawatts of Solar Photovoltaic under development. Headquartered in Moundridge, Kansas, Custom Rollforming Corp. is a subsidiary of The Bradbury Group. Its 52,000 square-foot facility houses ten roll forming lines. Custom Rollforming’s capabilities include pre-punching capacity up to 330 tons, turnkey fabrication, and robotic welding. Its customer list includes regional firms in the Midwest, as well as major OEMs throughout the USA and Fortune 500 companies. To find additional information about CRC, call 800.457.8837.
